Looks fabulous Clap

Is that floorpan epoxy difficult stuff to use? Can it be brush painted? And where can you buy it?

cheers

Epoxy primer is a 2 pack system best suited to spraypainting but i see no reason why it can`t be brushed. But then, if i was brushing i would be tempted to go for a single pack red oxide if your not planning on sandblasting etc.

Red Oxide can be brushed on really thick and then coated over with black etc. It required no hardener and keeps in this tin. You just need to peel the skin off the top when you use it. :)

Cheers
